Withings intros wireless blood pressure monitor
Withings this week introduced its latest health-related tech product, a wearable blood pressure monitor. Pairing with your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0, it syncs data to your Android or iOS device. Ideally, you use the unit to proactively keep an eye on your vitals and adjust your lifestyle accordingly. The monitor uses the same mobile (Health Mate) that other Withings products do and tracks steps (pedometer), distance traveled, calories burned, and, of course, blood pressure readings.
Simply slip on the cuff, turn on the Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor and the Health Mate app will automatically launch. Following a brief set of instructions, you will be ready to take your blood pressure.
The Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor is FDA approved and available immediately for $129.95 through Withings.
